Drake’s UFC betting luck has been quite shaky in previous years, with many fans labelling him as a “curse” for any fighter he chooses to get behind.
After accompanying Conor McGregor at the UFC 229 weigh-ins, Drake saw the Irish superstar suffer a devastating fourth-round submission defeat to Khabib Nurmagomedov.
Jorge Masvidal was then defeated convincingly by bitter rival Colby Covington after Drizzy laid a whopping £223k on him to win.
Drake’s poor run with the bookies was put to an end during the main event of UFC 276, however. Drake won a $1 million bet on Israel Adesanya, who defeated Jared Cannonier via unanimous decision.
Brits will hope that Israel managed to break the infamous “Drake Curse” for good, as the Canadian has slapped a huge £1.9 million on both Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann to win at UFC London.
Both Scousers go into their bouts as big betting favourites following their emphatic victories at UFC London in March.
Paddy takes on Jordan Leavitt as his quest to climb the lightweight rankings continues. His training partner Molly Meatball throws down against Hannah Goldy, looking to back up her stunning spinning elbow KO in her last outing.
Drake’s net worth of a whopping £203 million has allowed him to put his money where his mouth is and will hopefully add a further £3.8 million to that total… if the Scousers can get the job done tonight.
Posting on his Instagram story, Drake showed his followers the bet slip with the caption: “A Scousers parlay @stake.”
Drake will join the UK in getting behind two of the most recognisable faces in British MMA.
Let’s hope it’s the Scousers’ night.
